Martin On Turnovers: "It's Embarrassing"


By Sports Department

COLUMBIA, S.C. (WOLO) -- Turnovers continue to haunt Frank Martin. In Sunday's 64-55 loss to Clemson, the Gamecocks basketball team turned the ball over 19 times.

"It's embarrassing," said Martin. "I wish I could use another word. We've lost three games, and all three games have basically been lost with our inability to play offense."

Martin said there is a lack of team play that leads to the offense playing poorly.

"We play with such and individual frame of mind on offense, and we don't pass the ball. We don't screen. We don't know the concepts that we need to play with."

On regards to defense, Martin said it's not great, but "good enough to win with."

The Gamecocks next get into game action Friday against Jacksonville. TIp off at Colonial Life Arena is set for 7pm.
